For the last four decades, Sammy Hagar has been one of rock music’s most dynamic and prolific artists. From breaking into the industry with the seminal hard rock band Montrose, to his multiplatinum solo career, to his ride as the front man of Van Halen and beyond, Hagar has amassed 25 Platinum albums on sales surpassing 55 million worldwide. Along his journey, the “Red Rocker” has set the tone for some of the greatest rock anthems ever written with songs like “I Can’t Drive 55,” Right Now,” and “Why Can’t This Be Love” and earned the highest respect of the music industry with a Grammy Award and induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame alongside Van Halen. Hagar has also become a dedicated philanthopist, a two-time NewYork TImes best- selling author and auspicious entrepreneuer.
